and anyone for mitt romney is a absolute republican but you mentioned th break in the race. iowa is one of the swing states broken in the president's favor right now by a few points and anything in the bank is value added but if the dynamic changes and you have more undecided voters out there what the obama campaign argues is they have time and resources to those people hard core supporters voted. the romney campaign would say that's an exaggeration and they say republicans are more traditional. they pour the resources at the end. this is a growing and an important national trend and it give your test run if you will to your organization on the ground. >> in iowa city for us mr. magic wall himself john king. thank you. >>> don't forget as we ment watch this first presidential debate in denver colorado. romney versus obama next wednesday 8:00 eastern right here cnn. >>> just in. news from space. we are just getting word of a pretty big discovery on mars. folks, it involves water. that's next. pass pass here's what happened... i was talking to my best friend. i tol
todd akin and newt gingrich managed to drag mitt romney back into one of the ugliest senate races in the country. just what mitt needed. former house speaker newt gingrich campaigned with akin in missouri. akin is running against senator claire mccaskill. he made headlines last month when he said he didn't believe a woman could get pregnant if she was the victim of a legitimate rape. >> it seems to me first of all, from what i understand from doctors, if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to shut that whole thing down. >> if it's a legitimate rape. akin apologized, but mitt romney asked him to drop out of the race. >> i can't defend what he said. i can't defend him. >> akin defied romney and stayed in the race. here we are. now newt gingrich claims mitt romney will simply change his mind in a month or so. >> my expectation would be in the crunch in october, romney is going to be for the entire ticket and for todd akin. how many people are going to split their ticket and have a romney/mccaskill ticket? >> the republicans, i guess you could say, are in somewhat of a bi
. this is an important state for romney, it's an important state for obama, but claire has definitely got a tough race ahead of last word on the missouri senate race tonight. thanks for joining me, karen. >> thanks, lawrence. >> tomorrow night here on the last word exclusive, missouri senator claire mccaskill will be with us on that missouri senate race. "the ed show" is up next. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. 43 days until the 2012 election. only nine days until the first presidential debate. mitt romney thinks it's fair to pay a smaller tax rate than americans who earn $50,000 a year? you like that? the obama campaign is hammering back. this is getting good. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> what's your big idea? >> freedom. >> now we know. mitt romney loves freedom and he loves his low tax rate. >> so you think it is fair? >> yeah, i think it's the right way to encourage economic growth. >> tonight, richard wolf on mitt romney's definition of fair and economist dean baker on romney's ability to game the tax code with chinese investments. >> my e
have been showing a tight race with president obama around 49, 50%, mitt romney in the mid 40s or so, so mitt romney is within striking distance right now but there's no doubt that 47% comment did hurt him. >> chris cizilla, a decision today in pennsylvania, a legal decision. >> yep. >> which could have a big impact because if pennsylvania ever were going to be in play, now it will not according to what the republican hopes had been. this was the voter i.d. law and struck down by a judge, said there's no way to get voter i.d.s to so many people in time for election day. >> right. this was always i think because as you point out, a narrow timeline, five weeks to the day from the election, but what this does is it does not put that strict voter i.d. law in place for pennsylvania. and i think barring some change or data i've not seen, i'm not convinced pennsylvania was in play even if law had been upheld. i just don't think the votes add up for republicans in pennsylvania. i always say it's like charlie brown, lucy and the football. every time charlie brown tries to kick the football, l
gregory that on thursday morning it's going to be a new race, he said mitt romney's going to be standing on the same stage with the president and i'm telling you come thursday morning the entire narrative of this race is going to change? >> well, look, campaigns are very hard, there's a lot of -- of course, a lot of high stakes in the debates with governor christie i love his optimism. the governor feeds off that optimism. many members of the campaign continue to feed off it. i don't think any one moment will fundamentally alter this race. it's going to be close to the very end, we're preparing like it's going to be very close. i think the obama campaign is preparing like it's going to be very close and i think we're going to be in a very good position after this debate to go all the way to election day and be in a position to win. so that's where our focus remains. >> kitchen madden, good luck tomorrow night. we'll see you out there in denver. thanks so much. >> thanks very much. >> and up next, your viewers guide to those debate moments we all remember. how many were really game change
romney's going to race taxes on the middle class. now, mitt romney has never made that claim. this is coming from a report making all kinds of arguments. and he's made all kinds of a assumptions that the romney campaign has rejected. also puts harvey rosen, you can also generate enough growth to avoid a middle class tax increase. there are a loft credible folks saying something else. it's a fact he's going to raise middle class tax. >> the obama campaign, david plouffe is a chris christie of the campaign saying their campaign is built on a tripod of lies and the president has said sometimes they just make things up. >> last i checked, isn't this called politics? you have lying all the time in politics. it is our responsibility to call folks out on it. on my tv 1 show, i have a segment called the biggest damn lie. >> that's got to be a very tough line to draw. >> some lies are much bigger than the others. you have to call folks out on it. here's the problem i have when it comes to a debate. when you hear lies on a debate, they should be called on out on the spot. when you hear
very close along those lines. right now, though, for the moment, the race looks like mitt romney is slipping and obama is in front. >>neil: i was talking about an easy electoral win to the president if you buy the polls, and i don't, but the popular vote is tight. on to what is happening in the swing states, republican governors like to point out and we will elaborate on that, wait a minute. we are running these states, you are seeing the improvements in a last them because republican governors are exacting the changes. what do you say do that? >>guest: it complicates mitt romney's tack. he is trying to make the case that obama is not good for the economy and we are worse off than four years ago but in a lot of states, in florida rick scott and in ohio, john kasich, they have unemployment rates under the national average. romney has had his message undercut. >>neil: where does that come? when times are good the incumbent benefits and the times are bad, he doesn't. the governor is not inconsequential although he or should be in the scheme of things, if they are not up for election
new race with 33 days to go. >> governor christie right in the sense that romney needs to change the dynamic of the race. a new "washington post"/abc news survey find 5s 5% of voters think the president will win the debates compared to 31% who believe rom wil win. romney adviser tell "the new york times" they're aiming to make the president come off as condescending or smug. that characterized obama's notable gaffe during the 2008 primary when hillary clinton was asked what she would say to voters who seemed to like barack obama more. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. >> thank you. >> governor romney's 23 debate performances during the republican primary his weakness showed when he allowed competitors to get und her is skin prompting irritated off script moments that gave a new meaning to the #awkward. >> anderson -- >> you say you knew. >> would you please wait? >> are you just going to deep talking? >> yes, sir. >> let me finish what i have to say i'm running for office i can't have ill heels. >> when will yo
apologized, but mitt romney asked him to drop out of the race. >> i can't defend what he said. i can't defend him. >> akin defied romney and stayed in the race. here we are. now newt gingrich claims mitt romney will simply change his mind in a month or so. >> my expectation would be in the crunch in october, romney is going to be for the entire ticket and for todd akin. how many people are going to split their ticket and have a romney/mccaskill ticket? >> the republicans, i guess you could say, are in somewhat of a bind. romney can reverse his decision, he can defy his party and support a controversial candidate or write off control of the senate. meanwhile, another senate candidate has gone completely off script. video surfaced showing candidate tommy thompson saying he'd do away with medicare and medicaid. >> who better than me, who's already finished one of the sbiet mment programs to do away with medicaid and medicare? let's block-grant what the state has and allow the state es to determine what's going to go into medicaid. >> tammie baldwin is gaining in the polls. at this point, you can
's a margin of error race. in other words, that'd code for romney's behind and that's why they're making comments like this one. >> the question was if we lose ohio, could we still win. say if and buts were candy and nuts, every day would be christmas. >> make no mistakes. ohio, big problem for romney. >>> speaking of the two candidates, while they're both in ohio today, yesterday obama and romney rivalled the muppets and tried to take manhattan. they jammed as much as they could during competing visits to the big apple, a whirlwind day of media appearances. it was hard to miss them either physically in new york or on the tv. >> i'm just supposed to be eye candy here for you guys. >> the two traded few actual barbs. instead they did more subtle contrasts on the serious issues like the middle east and education and even less serious topics like who could best suck up to the former president, bill clinton. their sharpest and most substantive change was on iran. united nations, the president appeared to draw a real line in the sand on iran's efforts to build a nuclear weapon. >> so let me b
of likely voters shows the race between president obama and governor romney remaining up for grabs. the president leads 50% to 47%. but his three-point margin is within the poll's sampling error. our chief national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if he wins the election. and you know this full well, the reason this debate and what both candidates
this race start to tighten and then move in governor romney's direction. come thursday morning, the entire narrative of the race will change. >> congressman paul ryan was pressed to explain the republican approach to tax policy during an interview yesterday. >> you're the master of the budget. briefly, let's go through the plan. the obama camp says independent groups say if you cut those tax rates for everybody, 20%, it costs $5 trillion over ten years. true? >> not in the least bit true. look, this just goes to show if you torture statistics enough, they'll confess to what you want them to confess to. >> how much does it cost? >> it's neutral. >> we'll get to the deductions. the cut in tax rates. >> lowers all americans tax rates. >> how much does that cost? >> it's revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless it takes away -- >> lowering tax rates by broadening the tax base -- >> you haven't given me the math? >> it would take me too long to go through all the math. >>> in massachusetts tonight, senator scott brown and his democratic challenge elizabeth warren face off in the seco
this as an inyou in this race. -- as an issue in this race. according to politico governor romney now hold a 9-point advantage over president obama with middle class families. 53-44%. joining me to discuss it leslie marshall and lars larson. we were told by the mainstream media, lars, that governor romney was having major campaign issues and they were rooted to the middle class so how do you explain this poll? >> i think it's easy to explain. i can't wait for leslie to explain why middle class voters should like a guy -- watching middle class incomes -- megyn family incomes -- not the incomes of doctor's wives like leslie. but family incomes have gone down $5,000 under this guy. obama-care was supposed to bring premiums down by $2,500 but instead they have gone up $2,500. obama-care has 20 different taxes in it. why would any middle class family be happy about a president who took away flexible spending accounts? what is there to love if romney offers an alternative to what obama has done to them? megyn: when you look at the polling they dug deep and asked what is it that's upsetting you. 45%
in the state a week before the iowa caucuses. by then, it was too late. and he lost a tight race. romney's campaign should have refocused their efforts, but instead, they find themselveses rsloere cast today.t president obama is moving in for the final knockout punch. the obama campaign unveiled a full two-minute television video ad today with president directly addressing viewers. the ad is airing in four swing states, including iowa. it has the look and feel of a candidate's closing argument. >> it's time for a new economic patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy against with a strong, thriving middle cls. read my plan. compare it to governor roey's decide for yourself. thanks for listening. >> the president introduced the theme of economic patriotism into his stump speech at a campaign event in virginia today. >> during campaign season, you always hear a lot about patriotism. well, you know what? it's time for aew economi patism an economic patriotism rooted in the belief that growing our economyegins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> this is a new line in
about the new poll, polling information showing romney is trailing in the race nationwide. tell us more. >> we're getting new polls every day at this point in the race, which is fun for us. a new fox news poll has obama up by 48 to 43 margin over mitt romney. that's in keeping with other polls we have seen recently both nationally and in swing states, you know this poll looks like a lot of others. obama has advantages over romney on the economy and a range of issues. one thing that stood out in the poll is that a lot of voters didn't like how obama's handling the situation in libya. and the romney campaign sort of sees that as well which is why you see them hitting obama so hard on this lately. but there is still a problem here for romney. this is why the debates are so important. romney wants to change the fundamental structure of this race with this debate coming up next wednesday. remember, over 50 million people watched the first presidential debate in 2008. this is going to be a big moment coming up next week, fred, for mitt romney. >> well, let's shift to the u.s. senate and how p
. he is where it is a big deal, a way that romney is trying to keep the race close he is charging that president is not tough enough pushing back against china, largely on trade issues a separate issue of trade matters. the white house is pushing back on that, and the president has shown that he is taking action against china in terms of dumping cheap cars and auto parks and other things that can affect jobs in states like ohio. but mitt romney is saying it is too little, too late. obviously the white house doesn't want this close to the election to see some sort of a security breach. that is why they are making clear that no classified information was taken here. >>neil: thank you, ed henry, from las vegas. >> now, five weeks ahead of the election you may want to hear this next story. i've been a superintendent for 30 some years at many different park service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something dif
at this. it's remarkable. here's how the race looked before romney's 47% comment became public. some ups and downs but overall a pretty steady race. here's the race since the 47% video surfaced last monday. it's clear, it's a clear shift toward the president as americans learn more and more about romney, who romney is and how he views so many americans. two candidates, two visions in this election. we're all in this together or you're on your own. bill job build jobs from the bottom up or harvest jobs. joining me from mother jones, he broke the news about this harvest video a week after the 47% video itself. and michelle carter, washington correspondent for the newsweek daily beast. thank you both for joining me. >> thanks, rev. >> now, david, the romney campaign has responded to this harvest video. they said, quote, in addition to starting new businesses, mitt romney helped build bain capital by turning around broken companies, creating and saving thousands of jobs. the problem today is that president obama hasn't been able to turn around our economy in the same way. end of that quote.
think that mitt romney is in a position to win this presidential race. i think it is very important that he stop acting like a candidate and start acting like the president of the united states. what i would have had him do today is be meeting with these four leaders as the president refused to do and give that differentiation between the president of the united states sitting there on a talk show talking about being eye candy and having mitt romney meeting with leaders to try and solve these problems. that is what will be hit -- see him do. lou: and yet, and yet president obama, despite brushing aside the prime minister, despite just simply refusing to meet with any number of the leaders who one would have believed, as we pointed out, are from that statement by the candid obama some five years ago, really. it just makes no sense, what is happening here that suddenly the campaign takes priority over the business of state. >> well -- lou: and there is no comment in the mainstream media. >> well, the mainstream media has totally brushed anything this president has done a side of what
with the debates, do you fear an even tighter race here? >> well, mitt romney has to pre sent a plan. that's what these advertisements won't be able to do. the burden is on him to explain why returning to the same economic policies that caused the crisis in the first place, more tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, stripping it over wall street will somehow unleash job creation when it hasn't in the past. ultimately they here not building on the ground. we've been on the ground for the past four years. our organizers and supporters talking to their neighbors and communities. they may be able to build a 72-hour turnkey operation but they won't have the same roots in the community that we've been building over the past four years. that will be stronger than any negative advertisement on the air for special interest groups. >> super pac commercials may miss out on the specifics but the debates may be pivot al and some are worried with just the three days blocked out for the debate preps. president obama has had to cancel out some because of what's going on in the middle east. >> we're taking

could give the president more momentum or help governor romney reverse the trend and shake up the race. both campaigns are trying to down play expectations of what we'll see on wednesday. we have team fox coverage tonight ed henry on the president. first, john roberts covering governor romney's campaign for us. i know they are down playing expectations, john. but what are we expecting in the way of debate preparations now? >> in terms of debate preparation, i talked with mid romney's debate coach senator rob portman about that he said the strategy depends on which president obama shows up. if it's the combative and aggressive president obama. mitt romney could go toe to toe with him and punch for punch. it's it's 2008 rope-a-dope obama that dominated the debates back then governor romney has to be careful not to punch himself out early or commit any unforced errors. clearly articulate the choice between himself and president obama where he would take the country and where the president would here is ryan. >> he needs to give the american people the choice we are offering. that's what w
of this race is going to change. >> you know, if you are in the romney camp, you are doing one of these. but truth be told they would like to see the race turned upside down wednesday morning. they don't want people to expect it. shep? >> shepard: john roberts, thanks very much. well, president obama spent the day in nevada. one of those key battleground states. campaign aides say he will be practicing for wednesday's debate with mock show downs with senator john kerry. team fox coverage continues. ed henry is live in las vegas tonight. tell us how the president is trying to lower expectations, ed? >> well, shep, to hear the obama camp tell it, it's almost as if they are not sure the president is going to be able to show up and complete a full sentence. jay carney was telling reporters a few moments ago the president gives very long answers and that's a liability for him in this debate. when is the last time you heard the white house press secretary say the president is any sort of a liability. they are desperately trying to lower expectations going into this. they are playing up mitt r
for mitt romney, because your polling two months ago showed us that mitt romney was actually doing well on the issue of the economy. what happened? >> well, first of all, the race hasn't changed as much as the current hike suggests. it has tilted a little bit against mitt romney. we're still showing it tied nationally at 46%, romney is down by a point in ohio. that's not great news for him, but it's not a sea change in the race. what's happened? people are feeling better about the economy. consumer confidence is up, and people have not been convinced that mitt romney would be any better than barack obama. cheryl: but you know what, scott? 60% of americans right now believe that we're in a recession still. i mean, maybe we're not technically in one, but americans still feel that way. explain to me the numbers behind this. >> well, 60% say we're still in a recession, that's not a great number. it was over 70% a couple of years ago, so the trend is moving a little bit better. the number of people who say the economy will be stronger in a year is 36% now, that's up a little bit from earlier
in the senate race. congressman todd akin coined the phrase "legitimate rape." romney asked him to drop out. race. he refused. he admitted going to jail a couple decades ago, spoke out against fair pay for women and a key staffer is comparing him to david koresh during the siege at waco. she meant it as a compliment. texas senator john cornyn announced the republican senate committee will not put any money into akin's race. he said i just think that it's not a winnable race. so it's pretty much a business decision. but former speaker newt gingrich threw his support behind akin earlier this week. he also get mike huckabee's report, senator kit bond are following suit. the chair of the republican national committee said he would not support akin not matter what. >> are you going to support him? >> no, no. it can be tight. we're not going to send him a penny. >> but reince priebus may be changing his behind on akin, too. today he told cbs news "as chairman of the party i have an obligation to make sure we win as many seats in the senate as possible. the republicans need the race, no question a
